Agency: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security
On March 27, 2020, the President signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (``CARES Act''). This bill provides $100 million for AFG-S to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, domestically or internationally. Specifically, AFG-S funds shall be for the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and related supplies, including reimbursements for previously purchased PPE back to January 1, 2020. On May 12, 2020, FEMA published a Notice of availability announcing the application period for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 AFG-S Program which opened on April 28, 2020 and closed on May 15, 2020. By law, at least 25 percent of available AFG-S funds must be awarded to volunteer fire departments and at least another 25 percent must be awarded to combination fire departments. FEMA did not receive enough applications to award at least 25 percent of the available AFG-S funds to volunteer or combination fire departments under that initial application period. As a result, FEMA has opened a second application period for the remaining $31 million available. This second applicationor AFG-S 2is limited to volunteer and combination fire departments to fulfill this requirement. Volunteer and combination fire departments are eligible to apply in this round even if they had a successful application in the first round of AFG-S funding. However, such applications must support new or additional needs or capabilities. Departments that applied in the first round of AFG-S funding but were unsuccessful can reapply to be considered for funding in this round. Applications from the first round of AFG-S funding will not automatically carry forward to this round for consideration. Pursuant to the Federal Fire Prevention and Control Act of 1974, as amended, the Administrator of FEMA is publishing this notice describing the AFG-S 2 application process, deadlines, and award selection criteria. This notice explains the differences, if any, between these guidelines and those recommended by representatives of the national fire service leadership during a Criteria Development meeting, held April 20, 2020. The application period for the FY 2020 AFG-S Program opened on October 6, 2020, and closed on November 13, 2020, and was announced on the AFG website at https://www.fema.gov/ grants/preparedness/firefighters, as well as at https://www.grants.gov.

The purpose of this notice is to seek general information and comment regarding the preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided to the affected communities. The FIRM and FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, the FIRM and FIS report, once effective, will be used by insurance agents and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents of those buildings.
